Ah, Week 5, what can I say about you? Not much. Monday was tough, Tuesday was fine, Wednesday was typical, Friday was extended, and Saturday, well Saturday is noteworthy.
In fact, it was noteworthy because I didn’t run at all on Saturday. Instead of 16 scheduled miles, I ran zero. How can that be?
Well, if you hearken back to my earlier post asking you fine readers if I should run the Hottest Half Marathon, a whopping 11 votes (out of 56 page views, wtf??) majoritatively (new word) said I should run the race. When the people speak, I listen (except for here when I asked and didn’t listen). More on that race in my forthcoming race report. Anyway, the underlying theme here is that Week 5 offered little in the way of interesting. One item worth a hoot: I’m 18 for 18 on scheduled runs so far in this training plan. Hoot!

Side note: My question is, why not vote in a fun*, meaningless* poll if you’re already reading the website? Just vote!
